UFC On Fuel TV 8 Japan 2013: Silva Vs. Stann Results and Takeways

by

It was a night filled with some bizarre scorecards and some bizarre in cage action, but the main event made up for all of that and more. Brian Stann and Wanderlei Silva engaged in a highly entertaining brawl for just under ten minutes and delivered an early candidate for Round of the Year during the first round of their Light Heavyweight tilt. Strange scorecards and Split Decisions plagued many of the other main card bouts, but overall the event has to be considered a success for the UFC and for the fans in Japan if for no other reason than seeing former PRIDE Fighting Championship heroes Mark Hunt and Wanderlei Silva emerge with emphatic victories. As usual, we’ll take a look at what happened in the fights and what’s next for the main card fighters.

by

Fresh off the successful debut of Women scrapping inside the UFC octagon, the UFC is bringing another weekend of free fights. The octagon returns to the land of the rising sun for UFC on Fuel TV: Silva vs. Stann live from the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan.

The rest of the main card features a number of Japanese and Korean fighters for the local flavor, as is the norm for overseas events. The card also promises a lot of potential excitement and there are a couple of bouts which could move fighters ever closer to title shots in their respective divisions.

UFC 155 Dos Santos Vs. Velasquez Results and Wrap Up

by

The UFC made its return to the land of Pay Per View last night and although some fights left fans wanting a bit more, the other bouts were loaded with action that more than made up for it. If you were unable to see some of the undercard bouts, I highly suggest you try to do so by any means possible. Melvin Guillard versus Jamie Varner, while slightly slower than expected was an entertaining bout. As well the Featherweight tilt between Leonard Garcia and Max Holloway was a highly entertaining slugfest that went for a full fifteen minutes. Add in impressive TKO victories for Heavyweight Todd Duffee and Bantamweight Erik Perez and there is some top shelf violence for those of you that like it that way.

Moving on to the main card, some of the bouts didn’t quite live up to the hype. Others such as the co-main event between ..click here to read more , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

UFC 155 Results: Cain Velasquez Regains UFC Title

by

Cain Velasquez is an animal! Velasquez mauled Junior Dos Santos in their UFC 155 rematch proving to the MMA world that his 64 second loss to the JDS was a fluke. Velasquez won a unanimous decision to regain the UFC heavyweight title in one of the most one-sided UFC title wins in years.

Dos Santos could not stop the shot. Velasquez dominated the former champion on their feet and taking him to the ground. Velasquez had his way with Dos Santos at UFC 155, absorbing very little to punishment at all from the champion. UFC commentator Jor Rogan proclaimed at one point that he had not seen such a dominant performance by a challenger over a champion since Anderson Silva defeated Rich Franklin for the middleweight title several years ago.

Velasquez opened up looking to strike and takedown the former champion. Dos Santos did a good job early on of avoiding any ..click here to read more , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

UFC 155 Dos Santos Vs. Velasquez 2 Predictions & Analysis

by

The UFC returns to the land of Pay Per View this weekend with their traditional New Year’s Eve card. Despite not technically taking place on New Year’s Eve, the UFC has more than made up for it by packing this card with talent and intriguing match-ups from top to bottom. Headlining the card is a rematch that everyone has been clamoring for since their first meeting as the headliner for the UFC’s first event on the Fox Network as UFC Heavyweight Champion Junior dos Santos battles the man he defeated for the title Cain Velasquez.

The co-main event of the evening features a Lightweight tilt that will move the winner significantly up the ladder in terms of placement in what is arguably the UFC’s deepest division as Joe Lauzon battles Jim Miller.

UFC 150 Henderson Vs. Edgar II Results – Henderson Retains Via Decision

by

Frankie Edgar wasn’t supposed to be challenging for the UFC lightweight title at UFC 150. Yet after a public campaign, Edgar wound up getting the immediate rematch. Edgar and Henderson picked up where they left off in Japan and ended with even more controversy than before.

Ben Henderson retained the UFC lightweight title over Frankie Edgar via split decision in Denver, Colorado Saturday night at UFC 150. The five-round fight saw some high moments, yet I found it to be pretty disappointing as compared to their first fight. You won’t see any real highlight moments such as the up kick from their last fight but what you will see is a decision that I think was one of the worst in UFC history.

I was stunned when Bruce Buffer read the cards and announced Benson Henderson as the winner. I almost expected him to interrupt the post-fight interview and say that he ..click here to read more , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

UFC 150 Henderson Vs. Edgar II Predictions & Analysis

by

The UFC will be looking to build on an impressive Fox card with their return to Denver, Colorado. The last time the UFC took to the mountains of Colorado, the card featured a number of big athletes slowing down in the thin mountain air, leading to lackluster affairs and slow paced brawls. The UFC seems to have learned from past mistakes, as this card features men no larger than the Middleweight limit of 185-pounds.

The main event features re-match virtuoso and former UFC Lightweight Champion Frankie “The Answer” Edgar looking to regain his title from the man that took it from him “Smooth” Benson Henderson. The co-main event features a Lightweight tilt that seems to have Fight of the Night written all over it, as former teammates collide when Melvin Guillard battles Donald Cerrone. Other main card action features two Middleweight tilts and a potential Featherweight slugfest. In Middleweight action Jake ..click here to read more , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

10 Main Events Worse Than UFC 147

by

The UFC 147 headliner featuring Wanderlei Silva vs. Rich Franklin 2 has been dubbed by many the worst main-event in UFC history. However, a look back tells us that there have been far less interesting fights sold as UFC main-events.

I am certainly not thrilled about the fight but at the same time I think it is absurd to call this the worst headliner in UFC history. I have watched UFC since the start and I can tell you that there have been far worse mismatches passed off as main-events by Zuffa. This got me to thinking and with a little refresher help from Wikipedia, I was able to easily come up with ten fights that were far worse main-events on paper than the UFC 147 headliner.

Now to be fair not all of these fights were sold on pay per view. Some of these fights were given away for free on ..click here to read more , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

UFC 150: Henderson Vs. Edgar II Card Coming Together

by

A few months ago there was a thought that UFC 150 could become the gigantic event that UFC 100 was back in 2009. That will not be the case. However, the card is shaping up nicely with some intriguing fights and a main-event that can’t come soon enough for this writer.

Frankie Edgar will get his rematch with Benson Henderson for the UFC lightweight championship in the UFC 150 headliner August 11 in Denver. The rematch follows Henderson’s five-round destruction at UFC 144 which saw Henderson dominate a five-round fight that won him the championship. There was a lot of talk following the fight about whether Edgar would get a rematch or move down a weight class yet after a change of mind from the UFC head honcho, the UFC will be doing the right thing in my opinion by giving Edgar the immediate rematch.

UFC 134 Silva vs. Okami Results – Anderson Dominates, Shogun & Minotauro Get KO’s

by

Pride Fighting Championship lives again as three former Pride FC stars highlighted the UFC RIO card. Three former Pride fighters returned to their home country and electrified a sold out UFC 134 crowd in Rio, yet it was The Spider that stole the show.

Anderson Silva showed the world once again why he is the greatest fighter in all of MMA. After toying with Yushin Okami for one round, The Spider came alive and unleashed an assault of strikes on the challenger to finish the fight and win his 9th straight UFC championship defense at UFC RIO.

The first round was fairly uneventful until the final seconds. Most of the round saw Anderson dance around, look for the jab, but not connect on anything to deadly. They fought up against the cage for awhile with Anderson nailing a knee to Okami’s side that seemed to bother him. Okami went ..click here to read more , , , , , , , , , , , ,
